This program provides long-term, low-interest loans from Virginia Tech to students with financial need. The interest rate to first-time borrowers is five (5) percent. Repayment of both principal and interest begins after the student leaves Virginia Tech or drops below half-time status. Repayment is made to Virginia Tech, and once funds are repaid, they are used to make loans to other Virginia Tech students.
An excellent website with lots of highly specific information (especially if the focus of your work is in a scientific or technical area) has been developed by Joe Wolfe at The University of New South Wales (Australia).
Federal Stafford Loans are long-term, low-interest loans authorized by the federal government for the educational expenses of eligible students enrolled at least half-time. Students apply for subsidized Federal Stafford Loans (which are interest free) and Unsubsidized Federal Stafford Loans (which accrue interest) by filing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Repayment normally begins six months after the student leaves Virginia Tech or drops below half-time status.
Virginia Tech administers a comprehensive financial aid program that totals $179 million for all students. Approximately 70 percent of Virginia Tech students receive some form of aid.
Applicants for financial aid must list Virginia Tech's institutional code number, 003754, and/or the official name of the university (Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, or VPI&SU) on the FAFSA in order to have the analysis of their FAFSA sent to the university's Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid. Students must complete and submit a new FAFSA to the federal processor each year to be considered for aid at Virginia Tech.
